My first try at gum trees made from sedum flowers, thanks to Rod Hutchinson for supplying me with some from Melbourne
Not finished yet but progressing

Hi Dennis,
Looking good. :thumb: Have Rod H or Dan Pickard stepped you through the process Dan uses yet?

I hope I'm not stealing your thunder, but for your inspiration, here are some of Dan's from his "Diggers Bend Mining" layout


and some of mine that were in progress for my Corrimal layout. I've varied Dan's process slightly as I require a forest of less detailed trees. Raw material on right, canopies sprayed on the left


trunks painted


and with gum bleeds, ready for planting


I suppose I'd better post some of this stuff to the Corrimal thread as well... It has been neglected of late

Hi John,
I tried to find Dan's Thread but it just gave me an error. Rod kindly sent me some sedums up as I couldn't find them up here, and I used his step thru.
I've seen Dan's work before and that's what enspired me, so this is my first go

Hi all,

My tree modelling notes maybe dowloaded as a PDF at

https://www.dropbox.com/s/svhwbgrgn3f1esy/ModellingEucalyptusTrees_HutchinsonR_2010.pdf

For quick and dirty eucalyptus trees I tend to cluster 3 sedums together.

Hi Dennis
If you want to build a "real" big one
http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=3741&forum_id=8&page=3
from Dan's Splitters Gorge thread, and there is a photo also of Dan's trees in progress

and just found Dan's gum tree clinic "Home among the Gumtrees" at http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=3623&forum_id=9&jump_to=40359#p40359
Caution: long download.
